  1. Happy 50th birthday, CT

    He may be a taxi driver, but he's wait, what? just around the corner? Aye fuck off! *fires up Uber* I'm just jealous of the cake tbh. Not had one like that since I was five!
  2. Syria

    Poor article. Equates bombing ISIS with hating Islam, which is surely the very bedrock of right wing nutjob ideology? I can hate Isis, respect peaceful followers of Islam and believe that religion is mass delusion all at the same time, can I not?
  3. General Random Conversation..

    First world problems tbh. There's still people round my way (including relatives I'm ashamed to admit!) who are not exactly subtle in the fact they're not happy next door has just been bought by a brown family.
  4. General Random Conversation..

    Racist! Anyway, it's hardly rude when they were obviously pointing out Gemmill's bad taste in home furnishing. Impressive they change their language even when on the phone. Quite rare that, in my experience. You sure they don't suspect you're an undercover Border Force agent? Deep undercover obviously.

    Give us a synopsis. I'll probably understand it. Not sure about anyone else here though.....
  6. Stevie's is quite effeminate, as if his anger at the world is compensating for something....
  7. My main plan was for a boycott of this whole season on principle. Why? Because I just knew how it would be spun in the media as the usual 'fickle NUFC fans' if the calls for boycotts only started after 10 or so games, once it was confirmed that McClaren would be taking us nowhere. People should still boycott, absolutely, but be in no doubt, those who only start now will still forever be classed as a big part of the reason this club has been thoroughly hollowed out, and may never recover. Our biggest competitive advantage when being run properly - the stadium capacity - has been steadily eroded these last few years, both because other clubs have expanded (with more to come - Spuds, Lollerpool, Wist Ham), and it's become less of a factor to other income streams anyway.

    Kind of like Fish going home to see the family......
  9. Uber

    *looks up average life expectancy of taxi drivers in the north east, and subtracts 50* Yup, looks like you're right this time CT
  10. It's always amazed me that doctors were allowed to hand write things, surely people have died directly as a result of people not understanding it, or worse, misunderstanding it? My penmanship is exemplary, in part because I've had a few jobs where it was critical to product safety (medicines, dangerous machinery, etc) to be able to hand write notes in a one time only, no backsies, fashion. Not least since the presence of scribbled out and re-written words look extremely suspicious to safety inspectors (there's accepted procedures to cope with mistakes of course, but it's a real pain in the ass). I'd imagine the same is true in industries like aviation, where there's a need for someone to be able to go back and read notes that might have been made years previously, in order to determine if fitting a particular part to an aircraft is safe or not. Safety critical industries have long understood that the human is always the weak link in the chain, and so have learned to factor in things like poor hand writing (while also recognising that even worse mistakes can happen if people wait until they're at a computer to write things down, or are transferring notes from temporary pads onto official records).
  11. Funny pictures thread

    Jim Carey.
  12. Not at all. Just pointing out how many people on here gave me absolute dog's abuse for wanting us to get relegated last season, and then predicting this exact scenario once the appointment of McClaren was announced. They all argued that McClaren would have us moving in the right direction, and all seemed moderately pleased with Ashley's statement also. Plenty weren't, but plenty were. And sure, all sorts of bad shit could happen if we get relegated, but that doesn't change the obvious fact that it offers a better chance of getting rid of Ashley for good, than if we stayed in the Prem for another decade of this utterly shite existence (if he was remotely interested in selling at the top of the market, he'd have gone years ago, and any shenanigans he might pull he would, whether he was leaving us in the prem or not). At this point, he's just rinsing us.
  13. Found on his Wikipedia biography, this is the weirdest BBC "news" article I've ever read about any sporting figure. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/4973056.stm I would have been almost certain this sort of PR guff was the result of him hiring Max Clifford, but it seems that didn't happen until a month later....
  14. Syria

    Scoobos was one of the muppets, was he not?
  15. I'm quite sure he wasn't given responsibility for tactics at Man U. And I seriously doubt their players really needed a pep talk from him before they could get up for a game. I'm pretty sure he probably just sat in the corner at that point, while the captain or manager got on with things. As for his record as an international manager, that pretty much speaks for itself. But for anyone who doesn't remember what a farce it was, no doubt there's plenty of stuff in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_McClaren#England you might have forgotten.
